I'm just curious: are the devs aware of the Mantis Egg problem? Everyone's complaining about it (including me) so I would think it's safe to assume they know about it. Mantis egg lay rate is broken. You're lucky to get 1 egg a week. I feel like it has to be bugged (no pun intended!); there's no way that the egg lay rate is supposed to be this terrible, is there? I've looked all over and there's only been 1 response from Jat saying he'd have someone look into it, and that was 3 months ago. Everyone has theories on how to get them to lay eggs faster, but there hasn't been a single agreed upon method, which supports the suspicion that they're just broken. I do not expect a Wildcard dev to see this post, but it would really help a lot of us feel better if we got some kind of official response instead of a 3 month silence. If this gets an official response, I'll gladly spread the word in-game!
